Blessings Come in Threes....

The ministry we have with Small World Connections has always been exciting. Especially as we watch to see what doors the Lord opens and the people He brings our way as partners in Kingdom service.  In this past month we have seen three areas where He has surpassed our expectations in bringing us a new staff member, blessed the resale shops for significant financial contributions to charities and opened three new mission trip avenues to serve around the world....

Welcome Rebecca Waggoner
As we began the search for our part-time Assistant Go Team Director, we never imagined we would find someone as ready to be part of Small World Connections as Rebecca.  Her new role as a staff member is also a blessing in at least three different ways. 

When she starts with us at the beginning of October she will be moving to our area from Florida and will be closer to her parents and siblings who are based in Central Illinois. 

She will fill our part-time role as Assistant Go Team Director allowing us to expand our service as we connect a Timothy culture in the church. 

Finally, she has an amazing passion to start a mission business that will potentially help mission efforts all over the world.  We are thrilled to welcome her and can't wait to see how God uses her as she serves with Small World Connections!  Please let us know if you would be interested in joining Rebecca's financial support team or prayer team.

Three Blessings for the Community and Abroad

As we look at ways we are impacting ministries and non-profits locally and internationally, it is exciting to see how God has developed the ministry through our current resale ministries in Chillicothe, Canton and Peoria Heights Illinois.  Just during the month of August the resale shops gave out $18,676 to local and international charities.  What a privilege to be part of a ministry that helps so many great organizations in so many places around the world.  Please continue to pray for these ministries as we develop them further and begin to look for a director to oversee these and hopefully future locations. 

Three Mission Trips

Planning and facilitating mission trips is a big part of what we do.  It is one of the effective ways we are able to serve our ministry partners all around the world.  We have three upcoming mission trip experiences planned and we would like you to pray and even consider going.  Contact us if any of these are something that God has put on your heart.  Also, let us know if there is another ministry that you would like to serve and we will see what we can do to help you follow through on that prompting. 

Here are our next three trips:

Vision Team and Teaching Team to Liberia Africa
Teaching team to South East Asia
Video and Project Teams to the Philippines

Your prayer and support allows us to connect a Timothy Culture in the Church by:

  • Planning and facilitating experiences that help missionaries and expose people to their work
  • Encouraging and equipping leaders so that they can follow through on God's prompting to serve a specific ministry
  • Helping leaders recruit and train a team of people as needed to fulfill their vision for serving
  • Breaking down barriers that might keep people from following through on God's call to serve missions
